Houdini's 278 has a buyer

The listing at Douglas Elliman Real Estate for Houdini's former home in Harlem now shows "Contract Signed." This doesn't mean the house has sold. But it does mean there is an agreed upon deal in place between a buyer and the seller. But contingencies still need to met before closing can occur. This typically takes 30-45 days.

Houdini's 278 went on the market in June 2017 for $4.6 million. The price dropped to $3.6 million last month. This is the first time the house has been on the market in 26 years.

I attended the first open house and gave a detailed report on what I saw inside. I also posted a history of the owners and occupants.

  1. This has now hit the regular news with reports that the house has "sold." Technically that is not correct. It has a buyer, but it's still under contract, which means things need to be worked out before the deal can close. Not everything that goes under contract sells. But we are on the threshold.
